The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released some startling figures in a recent report. Complications during childbirth more than doubled during the study's time span. In addition, the number of emergency deliveries has increased by 75%. When combined with studies conducted by other health agencies, this study paints a disturbing picture.

You probably have a lot of questions and concerns if you had major problems during childbirth or if you delivered a baby who had birth injuries.

What is the difference between a birth injury and a birth defect?

How common are birth injuries?

How can I tell if my doctor was responsible for the birth injury?

What are the common causes of trauma?

Clifford Law Offices is ready to address these questions and provide sound legal advice from the beginning to the end of your birth injury case.

Visit the CDC's page on Severe Maternal Morbidity (the most significant complications of pregnancy) in the United States for more information on the study listed above and other relevant data sources.

During Prenatal Care or the Childbirth Process, Complications May Occur.

Birth accidents can be life-changing and catastrophic. Both the infant and the mother are at risk of severe injury and long-term illnesses. Your family could suffer a variety of injuries as a result of a medical professional's negligence, including:

* Cerebral palsy
* Brachial plexus
* Shoulder dystocia
* Birth hypoxia
* Erb’s palsy
* Forceps injuries
* Breech birth complications

Complications may also result from procedural errors. Failure to consider fetal distress or perform a timely cesarean section, for example, may result in serious injuries. To obtain a better understanding of what occurred and the injuries that resulted, our attorneys will consult with a network of trusted medical professionals. You can rely on us to fight with you in insurance arbitration disputes and courtroom cases.

How to Identify OB/GYN Negligence

Not all injuries to mothers and children during labor and childbirth are the result of a doctor's negligence. And when an obstetrician or gynecologist (OB/GYN) does everything possible to ensure the health and safety of mother and infant, things can go wrong. Try filing a medical malpractice claim if you determine the condition and find violations of a physician's medical duties. The following are signs of medical malpractice involving a child's birth:

An understaffed hospital room

Inattentive physician

Little to no checking of your (and the baby’s) vital signs

Mother or infant mistreatment

Inappropriate use of birthing tools

Failure to recommend a C-section until it was too late

Pulling or yanking on the baby’s arm

Lack of informed consent for a procedure

Dirty, dark, and dingy birthing centers

When delivering an infant, an OB/duty GYN's is to adhere to agreed medical guidelines. While not all child injuries are caused by the negligence of others, many are. If your child is diagnosed with an accident shortly after birth, speak with an attorney about filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.


Many of the injuries that can result from a birthing mistake can be life-altering. Cerebral palsy, for example, is a category of neurological conditions that can develop as a result of an infant's brain not receiving enough oxygen during birth. Cerebral palsy and other conditions may be caused by some disruption in a baby's brain growth.

Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects a child's ability to think, talk, and move. This is only one of the many injuries a child could sustain as a result of medical malpractice.

A medical malpractice case will provide you with the fairness, closure, and financial relief you need to move on with your child's future. With the assistance of an attorney, your family will obtain financial compensation for large medical costs, missed income, potential losses for your child, and pain and suffering.


A medical malpractice case could result in monetary compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, physical distress, emotional discomfort, and mental anguish as a result of your injury. If your child sustains a permanent injury, he or she could be liable for compensation for lost quality of life and lifetime medical costs.

Punitive damages can be awarded if the doctor's conduct are deemed exceptionally egregious by the courts. This extra reward is intended to discipline the defendant for willful misconduct or gross negligence. For medical malpractice clients, Clifford Law Offices has a track record in obtaining high-value damages and verdicts.
